About "Memphis Makes Top 10 of Least Hipster-Friendly Cities":
"Complaining about the dearth of vegan cafes in Memphis is like complaining about the lack of surfing in Nebraska." — CL Mullins

About "Looking South" and Helena's new focus on its Civil War history:
"It is indeed a historical irony that previous Memphis city officials would choose Confederate leaders as the subjects of memorial reverence. According to historical records, in the 194 years since the founding of Memphis, there have been at least 13,786 notable Memphians for whom permanent statuary could be justified according to the mores and customs of the times during which they lived." — Lieutenant Commander Data

About "God, I Hope You Get It: A Chorus Line Kicks High at Theatre Memphis":
"You really got this review SO right! They have done an amazing job with it and captured the essence of the passion performers have when they choose a career in the theatre." — Minnie

About "Chris Peck Reveals Retirement as Editor of The Commercial Appeal":
"Mr. Peck was the 'conservative' voice of the CA's editorial board, which says volumes about the paper and their agenda. I won't miss him or the CA when they are gone. Those with true talent (Geoff Calkins for example) will find work elsewhere. Those who owed their employment to their race or gender will likely flounder. Some other entity will step up to fill the gap and we will forget the CA ever existed, much like we have forgotten the Press-Scimitar." — BartlettDad38133

Comment of the Week:
About "Commercial Appeal Tightens Online Accesss":
"I heard most of the current CA commenters are now occupying a foreclosed mansion on Shady Grove Road." — phlo
